Paper Abstract

PIN-FET receivers developed for 8, 34 and 140 Mbit/s have been displayed in real systems generating confidence in the base technology 1,2. We have now extended this to 565 Mb/s and 1.3 Gbit/s for systems to be installed in the near future. At data rates beyond 1 Gbit/s, alternatives to the PIN-FET become attractive. We present here results of a study into these alternatives and compare these with current 565 and 1.3 Gbit/s PIN-FET receivers.
